Convince LeBron to Enter Dunk Contest

But James has steadfastly sat out the contest, which has in many fans' estimation devolved into a derivative, yawn-inducing shell of its former self.

?It?s just not me, I?m not a dunk contest type of guy,? James told reporters last year. ?I?m an in-game dunker. I kind of improvise during the game. I?m not for scoreboards and all that type of stuff.?

But if the winner walked way with a check for a million dollars?

?Then I?d reconsider,? he said. ?Wouldn?t you??

Twenty-eight-year-old NBA fan Chris Thomas is aiming to make James reconsider.

Thomas created a crowdfunding website to raise $1-million to convince James to enter the slam dunk contest.
